Mifepristone, Narcan, and the Politics of Hate in America 2023  

Mifepristone, Narcan, and the Politics of Hate in America 2023  

The catastrophic climate change may not be the weather but the social climate—here in the U.S. and abroad. We are experiencing social behavior drastically and negatively escalate into an era of hate, selfishness, intolerance, and violence. The attempts to limit access to life saving and life altering medications like Mifepristone and Narcan are examples of intolerance and ideology, not medical science. We should be progressing from the enlightenment; instead, we are regressing faster than icebergs are melting at the North Pole.  

Why the malaise? Could it be over-population? Like rats in a cage, people exhibit happy copulatory behavior, until the cage gets overcrowded, and they begin to become aggressive and even cannibalistic. Could it be the dome of gloom hanging over the planet? What is there for young people to aspire to if it’s all going to end in fire, drought, floods, or the mushroom-shaped cloud of nuclear war? Could it be the media and its false lies, conspiracy theories, and gun fetishes that invade our space into our deepest private sanctum?. Or perhaps it’s the fact that the news cycle is immediate, gives no time for perspective, and lets everyone see who has the good stuff and who doesn’t. 

Maybe it’s as simple as the lack of moral leadership worldwide in politics and religion, education, and business. Whatever the reason(s), we are in deep doodoo, and only we can get ourselves out of it!

I’m a conversationalist, an observer, a passionate participant in life. And now, in my later years, I’m a recorder of the lessons of my life through essays, stories, and novels. I live in the fourth moment of life, just outside the normal distribution of most people and it is from this place that I write.
